The bead maker Karen Hruza, calls these beads moonstone petals and they are gorgeous. They were difficult to photograph, changing colors with the color and type of daylight that surrounds them from yellow, golden, green to iridescent blue. When Art Bead Scene announced its monthly designer challenge for July using the colors inspired by Pablo Picasso's "Portrait of Olga in the Armchair" I knew I would have to submit an entry using these beads I had purchased a while ago. In an attempt to keep things simple I decided to make a knotted hemp bracelet. It's been many years since I have knotted anything, and have been thinking about macrame. I hope you like it.
